Two weeks after abrupt withdrawal, DPRK deputy director returns to liaison office

Business-as-usual at Kaesong site as between nine and ten North Koreans arrive for work

A North Korean deputy director-level official returned to work at the inter-Korean joint liaison office in Kaesong on Monday morning, the Ministry of Unification (MOU) confirmed on Monday.

The move comes just over two weeks after Pyongyang said it would withdraw all staff from the facility, and follows the North's decision last Monday to re-dispatch some personnel to the office.
